to witness the vote. the united states, israel and other western countries oppose this move by the palestines. palestinians. more than a dozen european countries are supporting this rez lug. the uk says it may vote yes pending a couple of conditions. the u.s. has supported a two-state resolution for palestinians and israelis. why do american officials oppose u.n. recognition? >> for the most part it won't give the palestinians what they want, which is an actual state. this vote is largely symbolic. it would have no effect on the palestinian sovereignty or borders or any of the things they're looking for. israel is vehemently opposed to this vote. it said it threatened to cut off aid to the palestinians, impose new checkpoints if they do so. what the u.s. is fearing here is that if this vote goes ahead, and we see that it's pretty much a guarantee that it will -- that the palestinians will be upgraded at the u.n., basically it's not going to lead to anything good on the ground. what the u.s. is afraid of is that it will lead to more violence if the palestinians don't see their state actually r

was poisoned by israel. that is something that israel denies. lastly now, arafat's successor mahmoud abbas, had to authorize the exhumation that took place today but he was not there when it got underway. he is now on his way to new york to attend a session of the united nations. he is expected to attend the general assembly later this week on thursday. and to ask that the status of the palestinians be upgraded to nonmember observer state. that is something that israel and the united states hasn't indicated, they have indicated they will oppose. jenna? jenna: big story there and one to watch for sure. david lee miller in jerusalem, thank you. jon: and one of the big domestic stories, the fiscal cliff negotiations underway right now. entitlement reform is a big part of those negotiations. republicans say the nation must make adjustments to those costly programs. in exchange they say they're willing to compromise on taxes but so far no word from democrats. why? we have a fair and balanced debate next. >>> plus the supreme court breathing new life into a challenge to the health care law. the lates
. their relationship goes back years and years and years. in fact, i was reading one of the israeli newspapers. israel today ran no fewer than four opinion pieces just yesterday endorsing romney. what happens now, christiane, in this relationship between netanyahu and obama? >> well, what happens now is that obama is the president of the united states. netanyahu is the prime minister of israel. and they have to work together. these are two countries which stand side by side. there in no doubt in anybody's mind that the united states stands firmly for the security of israel, the intercommunity knows. it yes, there has been a cool relationship between netanyahu and obama, however netanyahu did congratulate the president this morning and said the strategic reliance between israel and the u.s. is stronger than ever. i will continue to work with president obama in order to assure the interests that are vital to the security of the citizens of israel. so, again, no doubt where the united states stands the strong security and protection of israel. the real issue of course that has divided them, one, iran. a
role in the cease-fire between israel and hamas, but now is he the target of mass protests. they are denouncing president morsi as a dictator. all this for a new set of orders and declarations he made basically giving giving himself absolute power at least until egypt's constitution is finished. who exactly is the man behind all of this praise and protest? we've been learning so much more about him and seeing so much more of him as we've watched the talk of israel and gaza this week. let's bring in nadia belichick to talk a little bit more about mohammed mossey. he actually wasn't even his party's first choice, right? >> correct. he wasn't. morsi is not particularly charismatic. he has been called a dull technocrat and sometimes a spare tire. because of various technicalities as to who was eligible, he was one of the few who was eligible to run for president. >> he studied in the united states? i mean, we know a little bit about him, but not a whole lot. that's true? >> yes, correct. he got his doctorate many engineering from the university of southern california, although
